The FAIS community unexpectedly lost longtime business manager and FAIS parent, Mary E. Gambee, from complications of a stroke. Mary was instrumental for us having the beautiful campus we enjoy today.
An excerpt from her obituary reads:
“After completing her post-baccalaureate studies in accounting at Portland State University, she joined Coopers & Lybrand as a CPA. Later, she worked in investor relations at U.S. Bancorp achieving CFA Level I. The crowning jewel of Mary’s professional career, however, was as business manager at the French American International School.”
In lieu of flowers, her family requests people consider a donation to the Mary E. Gambee Financial Aid Fund at FAIS, Portland Arts & Lectures, or to a charity of your choice.
